User Review: Raichle Spirit III GTX
Materials: Nubuck leather w/GTX lining
Use: Day hiking, back packing 7-10 days
Break-in Period: 15-20hours
Price Paid: $1.59
Great boot. Fits me very good, great support carrying 50 pd pack. Waterproof in streams, rain, and snow. Used Nikwax Aqueuos on leather instead of recommended nubuck nikwax. The Aqueous will dramaticaly darkin and mat the leather, but in my opinion works much better. The GTX is great if the leather becomes sacurated. Only down side of the GTX with all leather boots is that your foot will get a little warmer , bonus for colder days.
